Just out of curiosity what would you say would be a leakable, non-yawner lens?  Neither of these is all that exciting, but both seem like good additions to the lineup.

I'd consider fast, sharp, wide-angle primes to be non-yawners. That and updating most of their lenses to be optimized for digital imaging.

That would be nice, but given the new F/4 L zoom line-up of 17-40, 24-105 IS, how about a 100-300 f/4 L IS? Or even a 4x f/4 telephoto zoom like 100-400 f/4L IS, since lenses of good quality with wider zoom ranges seem possible these days, once one shrinks the aperture a bit from f/2.8?

I am not sure I believe that Canon has done a minor twiddle on the 85/1.2L, certainly not on the basis of that one fuzzy "leak" photo.

I wish a smaller, lightweight, yet high-quality semi-pro camera from camera, considering the new rumored 30D or 35D;

* Sized between 20D and 350D
* 11mp
* 1.6x
* same noise properties of 20D
* ISO info on screen
* MLU button
* weather sealing

new EF-s 17-85mm (L) IS lens (better optical & build quailty than the current version)
new EF-s 17-180mm IS (to compete with Nikon 18-200mm VR)

& one year later a 5D successor

* Again sized between 20D and 350D
* 16mp
* FF
* same noise properties of 5D
* weather sealing

new 21mm f/2.8 L with larger image circle & better corrected elements to avoid coma & CA.

Am I the only person who thinks that the 300D had better noise characteristics than the 20D at 100 and 200?  (The 20D is better at the higher ISOs.)

I owned a 300D, 10D, and 20D. For me, the 20D has noticably lower noise at ISO 100 (like none, ever).

Ditto here. I don't own a 20D or 10D but have used them and worked on files from them quite often. The 10D behaves just like the 300D in terms of noise and the 20D performs better than the others at all ISO levels. At ISOs 100 and 200 differences are very minute.

Turn on anti noise in Menu and you got it, if you are talking about noise from greater than 1" shutter speed.

Except maybe a digital rebel.

I would like to see noise performance like the 5D and weather sealling.  Yeah...I know neither of those will happen, but that would be nice.  The extra 2 megapixels would be nice, but not a complete selling point.

I don't like small cameras. They are hard to hold and feel like pocket cams. The difference between the Rebel and 20D is a good example. More grip, for me, is good grip.
